Bridging courses

Bridging courses are designed to let you explore the foundational knowledge related to your course and get used to university study before you start your degree. The courses are delivered remotely with a combination of self-paced and "live" sessions, so that you can complete them around your work and family commitments.

This course is recommended for students enrolling in any first-year Physics course, who have a limited background in physics.  The course has been designed to provide students with an introduction to those concepts in Physics, that appear to defy common sense, and are consequently most often misunderstood. These concepts include the nature of forces and their role in motion, work and energy. Difficulties with these concepts generally hamper progress in other areas of Physics. 

The topics discussed with include motion, vectors, coordinate systems, Newton’s Laws, gravitation, conservation laws, measurements and uncertainties.  The course will include lectures, tutorials and practical work in our undergraduate physics laboratories with the emphasis on problem-solving and learning by example.
